Lovelies ... and then a cake mystery solved.

That above picture is part of Laura's May 13th blog post.  But before you see that picture on the post you will  see some beautiful pictures of scenes in January - and then in May.  They're the same scenes just in drastically different seasons. They're wonderful.  Really.  Go THERE!

And isn't that lovely... how that Texas map is turning out?!!
---------

Here's another lovely...
It's a little music box!
It plays Will and Bailey's favorite song -
that was played when she walked down the aisle at their wedding.
(Will was singing it - on a recording.)

Here it is again... so you can see how small it is...
Will and Bailey gave it to me for my birthday.  They got it at a museum.
I have been keeping it on my nightstand lately.
(It's nice to have a treasure on my nightstand.)

In other news,
I was babysitting Nell the other day at her house,
and lo and behold, there were devil's food cake crumbles around.
I didn't get a picture of the biggest set of crumbles, but here you get an idea...
and here....
Of course, I thought, "They're letting little Nell eat over here by the couch."
Of course, that was a judgment call, of which I'm ashamed.
(And I was hoping they had more cake.)

When Bailey got home I told her that there were crumbles around,
and I hadn't swept them up yet.
(And thought maybe she'd offer me some cake.)

Then she said they'd never had any chocolate cake!

She mentioned that when I walked in that morning
there was mulch or something coming off of my shoes.

Hmm.
So I looked at the bottom of my nice (but kinda old) Clarks sandals...
Whoa!!!
There were the devil's food cake crumbles!!!

And my other sandal was getting ready to crumble, too...
Whoa!
I really liked those sandals...
... that are now in the trash can.

(I'll still buy Clarks though (on sale), because I like how they feel - and look.)


There are (at least) three lessons to this tale ...
1) Know the facts before you blame someone
for letting their daughter eat devil's food cake by the couch.
2) Every now and then check the bottoms of your shoes...
no telling what is going on down there.
3) Have a blog so you can tell about anything
and everything in your life!!
